A trough of low pressure persists across inland areas of the Northern Territory
and Queensland triggering some showers and thunderstorms.

Areas of cloud with thunderstorms cover much of Western Australia extending into
the Bight. This is due to an infeed of moisture and a developing upper trough to
the west.

An low pressure trough is moving up east coast. This trough has an associated
cloud band that stretches southeastward to a cold front over the Tasman Sea.
Areas of low cloud lie in the wake of the front over Tasmania and southern
Victoria. Another cold front in the Southern Ocean is nearing the south coast of
Western Australia.

Thunderstorm activity continues over the tropical north of the country.
